Sew an Animal Print Infinity Scarf

One of my grandchildren asked me to make something special for him to give to someone for Christmas. He is such a sweetheart and seldom asks for me to do anything, so how could I refuse? After all, it takes less than an hour to cut out and sew one of these animal print infinity scarves.

Animal Print Infinity Scarf

Materials and tools required:
  1. One-fourth Yard of 54-55 Inch Light-Weight Fleece Fabric
  2. Matching Thread
  3. Sewing Machine Unless You Plan to Sew by Hand
  4. Hand Sewing Needle to  Sew the Opening Closed After Turning the Scarf Right Side Out


Fold the fourth of a yard of fabric up the middle and with right sides touching. You will be sewing a seam on the wrong side of fabric, along the longest length of the fabric to form a tube 54-55 inches long. Just follow the tutorial I posted months ago. It can be found at this link: http://mimimine.blogspot.com/search?q=Infinity+Scarf.

Remember to start the seam a couple of inches from the beginning of the "tube" and stop sewing a couple of inches from the end. This way it is easier to sew the ends of the tube together once you turn it right side out.

People, this is as easy as pie, even for the beginner, and can be whipped up in almost no time for those last minute gifts.

Relax and have some fun making some of these!

How to Make and Use a Stencil Using Cricut Expression

My family and many of my friends know how much I adore French inspired creations and design. The flourish of the curly-cues and curves are so appealing. An image of the Eiffel Tower in any form sets my imagination into high gear. It will come as no surprise to people who know me well that when I feel the desire to get creative, it is often with a French flair. So, when pondering what to make for Joanne, a dear friend of mine, I designed the stenciled pillow covers shown in this post. 
I constructed the pillow cover/shams myself from a twin sized white cotton sheet and embellished the opening edges with black grosgrain ribbon before sewing the side seam together. If you prefer not to sew your own, you can purchase a pair and begin from there. This image could be reduced a little in size and applied to hand towels, etc.

My Cricut Expression was used to make the stencil for the design and the cartridge used was Storybook. The design used was a flower design which is associated with the …

Victory Sports Soccer Season and the Blessings of Friends and Family

This past Saturday marked the beginning of a new soccer season for Victory Sports, the church league in which my daughter, Angela, her husband and their children have been involved for a good many years now. All three children have played sports with this league and/or have assisted in coaching the younger children for basketball and soccer. Angela does all the things that mothers of children who are involved in church or school sports activities do. Up until now, Jimmy, our son-in-law, has been very active in coaching the children for soccer and basketball. This soccer season he, because of complications and side-effects involved with his treatments, has not been able to coach.

Shiloh Baptist Church is a sponsor of Victory Sports and is the place where all the games are played and where children from all around the Aiken area are blessed to be able to participate in the games and activities associated with Victory Sports. Angela, Jimmy and the children are members there and have bee…

Homemade Fresh Chunky Peach Ice Cream

One of the best things about summer is the abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables. Farmer's markets and roadside stands boast baskets of all sorts of beautiful, tempting regional produce. Georgia is called the Peach State but the area where we live in South Carolina grows the most juicy, sweet and delicious peaches you could ever hope to eat. The month of July, particularly around Independence Day is when the best (in my opinion) are ripe and ready to be harvested and sold.

Our family eagerly anticipates the appearance of those beautiful peaches!
There are all sorts of delicious ways to prepare and eat this luscious and delectable fruit. They are simply scrumptious when peeled and sliced like this:
You can add a splash of milk or coconut milk and a little sugar, but it really is not necessary. They are so very sweet and satisfying. Eaten fresh they are quite good for the health. Peaches contain lots of vitamins A and C and minerals, such as potassium. The average peach is said ha…
